Septic Tank Pumping

If you have a septic tank, treatment plant or cesspool at your home, please remember that it needs to be emptied on a regular basis. The Environment Agency recommends tanks are emptied at least every year to ensure they don’t damage the environment. This can help reduce the risk of overflowing tanks, blockages, soak-away problems and sometimes smells!

Often sewage treatment plant systems need emptying more frequently as there could be problems associated with the soakaway system.

Why you need to get your septic tank or domestic treatment plant sludge emptied every year

By emptying your septic tank once per year will help to reduce the risk of blockages and damages which can be very expensive and time consuming to fix. The cost of emptying and cleaning a septic tank can cost £180 - £280 but to fix or replace a septic tank will cost between £10,000 and £20,000. So having the septic tank emptied every year is a bit like insurance.

The guidance from the Environment agency is to empty the tank once per year to ensure no environmental contamination or damage is caused. If septic tanks are malfunctioning then there could be a leak which causes damage to the surrounding environment.

By emptying the septic tank once per year you can reduce the smells emanating from the tank. If there is a large quantity of sludge within the tank then there will be smells. However, if it is emptied and cleaned out regularly then there shouldn’t be any smells.

Nobody wants their house toilets and baths to be blocked or backed up with foul smelling waste. If aseptic tank becomes too full of sludge then it may prevent new waste from entering the septic tank which causes your pipes to block and therefore waste will back up into your house.
